Glorious (WeMix) Contest Finalists

October 23, 2008

Over 9,000 songs were entered into this contest. We now have 5 finalists…and you must help choose the winner. Feel free to check out all five, and vote for your favorite. One vote every 24 hours is permitted…I’ll visit the winner in the studio to help them record their winning song.

I also did some interviews with Wemix about writing and recording, you can find that stuff in the Knowledge section of their site.

    not sure if this is the place to ask but its sort of relevant to the topic
    i have a remix of your Fort Minor track ‘Where’d You Go’ and I was wondering if i could get your permission to post it on my YouTube channel?
    thats fine if you dont want me to, however it was made out of respect and appreciation

  7. BlakeA on October 24, 2008 at 5:38 pm

    !!MIKE I HAVE A QUESTION !! iv always wondered this. When you guys ( or even bands in general actually ) make a music video, like when your shooting it, lip sync? cause when i see the making of music videos on fuse it always plays the real song. Just always kinda wondered. Much appreciated if you could tell me :]

  8. Basim_Darwish on October 24, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    I watched all the videos you have on WeMix and I’m completely inspired and motivated to become a better producer.

    Thanks Mike!

  9. cuz on October 24, 2008 at 1:51 pm

    Those are really good ones. My favourite is “Stories of the lost”. Have a nice day πŸ™‚

  10. Mikeshi_Linkfort on October 24, 2008 at 1:49 pm

  13. jessicahlin on October 24, 2008 at 12:33 pm

    mike you’re so beautiful.

  14. Mark86 on October 24, 2008 at 12:21 pm

    Wow, I thought that site was only for hiphop/rnb, but I was wrong, good to hear also some rock-girl. Anyway, “Stories of the lost” is my fav.

  15. Phoenix10 on October 24, 2008 at 11:50 am

    “Hollywood Girl” is really the best i think!!!
    I donΒ΄t like the other songs.

  16. Jaclyn on October 24, 2008 at 11:40 am

    Cool news! Unfortunately the song I liked the most didnt get into final (Bed of memories by Apollo Poetry, Phoenix Az) but among five suggested songs I like Hollywood girl. I must tell you that I hardly (or just dont) understand lyrics of five finalists, I judge what is pleasant to hear. Stories of the lost and No Regrets is nice. I hope you’ll post the lyrics of the song that will win the contest.
    I’ve watched your interview vids on wemix in August, that’s great, interesting and very hot filmed! Give the camera man more work with you πŸ˜‰

    Congrats to HT annivesary! Congrats to LOATR Milton Keynes video – Awesome! Greetings to Chester ❀

    (characters count is super! thanx a lot!)

  17. GraiggyLand on October 24, 2008 at 11:28 am

    Hey Mike, just saw a video on WeMix about your love of computers and the way you like to create music like LEGO, as a MAC user i guess you tried GarageBand (maybe you do some songs on it) listening to “Believe Me” – the violon intro – i thought it sounds like a sample in garage Band do you really used it or was it a real track recording that sound similar .. it would be awesome to see that with a GarageBand sample you can do a smash hit (i bet you can do a platinium record with a banjo if you want) …

  18. Dori on October 24, 2008 at 11:20 am

    Voted last night!! Stories of the Dead is my favorite, although, Hollywood Girl was very good, as well! The Glorious Excess vids on your wemix page were extremely interesting as well, especially the one where you talk about criticism…

  19. Melk on October 24, 2008 at 11:02 am

    Hey Mike !!!
    Ok.i’ve seen a new video of you and Mark Wakefield, as Joanie_Lp…It’s really you ?!!!!if it’s you, Oh my god !You’re very very funny !!Just before the elections πŸ˜› !! I love it ! This video it’s very cool πŸ™‚
    Thanks for your wonderful videos… πŸ˜‰

  20. Joanie_LP on October 24, 2008 at 9:24 am

    (off topic) heeeeey Mike. why there isn’t a blog for this: I didn’t know you could sing like that! πŸ˜€ Bravo πŸ™‚ m/

  21. Kalini on October 24, 2008 at 8:51 am

    Mike, the video of LOATR from Road To Revolution is great! Thanx for posting it on! All the 5 finalists are very good. It’s a very hard choice between “Stories of the lost”, “You don’t know” and “Through 2 You”. I have to listen to the songs once again before making a decision. All the things you say in the interviews are completely right!!! Take care, Krassie K.

  22. maria on October 24, 2008 at 8:44 am

    Yeah) Happy Birthsday Hybrid Theory) LINKIN PARK))))) It’s the greatest day ever)) The album is the start of a new word in music)))) LINKIN PARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope that you celebrate it))) 8 years anniversary))))))Hybrid Theory))

  23. rockermeg on October 24, 2008 at 8:18 am

    OH MY GOD!!! (completely ignores post)
    I’ve just seen the live video of Leave Out All the Rest in Milton Keynes!!!! I changed onto Scuzz and I was like “Nothing good is on” and then I saw you on the keyboard and I registered what song was playing and I went maad!!!
    Then I was like “Wait…I recognise that venue” and I realised it must be off your new DVD
    The video looks amaazing!!!!! And you looked amazing that night Mike (-:


  24. LP_Fan on October 24, 2008 at 8:00 am

  28. Xenith on October 24, 2008 at 6:27 am

  32. RavRule52 on October 24, 2008 at 3:19 am

    i’m so glad that you chose some that weren’t as bad as some of the songs i was listening to. i was getting kind of scared when i started listening to the songs with the “top spins”.

    oh by the way, happy hybrid theory anniversary! 8 years… wow.

  33. Frerard on October 24, 2008 at 3:07 am

    will check those out later on.

    happy Hybrid Theory anniversary! i kinda miss the red hair >.>

    now ima go over to other board to say happy anniversary for some alter ego and say i miss the blonde hair.

  34. EllePi on October 24, 2008 at 2:39 am

    Hello! They are 5 nice artists! But i really love “Through 2 You ” by Rayven! πŸ˜‰ Good luck !

  35. misterx on October 24, 2008 at 1:47 am


  36. Mickey on October 24, 2008 at 1:42 am

    I’m liking the share-this feature a lot…lol. I’m posting on my LiveJournal, Facebook and MySpace like a goddamn maniac, to make sure that as many people as possible becomes aware of your blog. Hehe.

  37. Shinodabestfriend on October 24, 2008 at 12:46 am

    I have to write a song too…. u.u lol

  38. Hybr1d_7h3ory on October 24, 2008 at 12:12 am

    I thought everyone was giving me b-day wishes. LOL. That was the first time I had visited WEMIX, but I have to admit that is one hell of a tool for artists. I’ve recently bought a guitar and WEMIX throws some fuel in my fire to start writing and hopefully getting some stuff out there.

    Congrats on 8 years of an AMAZING cd, and I hope many more.
    Keep in touch Mike

  39. ms_shock on October 23, 2008 at 10:59 pm

    OH MY GODNESS!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS VIDEO!!!!!!!!! ooohhh and now i don’t have to resign in, that’s GREAT!!! And the comments background and the letters are still black, which isn’t comfortable 😦 Is it because of opera?? But it was ok before!!!

  40. ffmuteki9 on October 23, 2008 at 10:54 pm

    wow…it’s more easy to distinguish between articles with gray block, but the blocks cover the beautiful background, haha.

    anyway if Mike you think it’s better then remain it. for me it does make the articles easy to read. I wont get confused with the previous one or next one.

    and the characters limitation is 700? more than before?

  41. EpilepticChickenScratch on October 23, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    Why….did you put gray boxes? They hurt my happiness! Damn people and their stupid programs! Firefox and internet explorer work JUST fine. It was so pretty before. UGH. Your site is ugly now =( But, I had to vote. And I voted for Through 2 You. Fucking AMAZING.

  42. TEQUILA on October 23, 2008 at 9:24 pm

    yeah,it wasn’t easy to choose…”Stories of the lost” got my vote)but all of them were great!those guys did really good job!
    i can’t even imagine,how u checked 9000 songs)
    and yes,Hybrid Theory,Happy B’Day!

  43. alyeska39 on October 23, 2008 at 8:20 pm

    It was really hard to choose between “Hollywood Girl”, “Stories of the Lost”, and “Through 2 You”. I ended up going with “Through 2 You”, but all of them were very good. πŸ™‚

  44. sweet_girl on October 23, 2008 at 8:18 pm

    Mike why don’t decide by yourself

    Kisses sweetheart love you so much

  45. JD303 on October 23, 2008 at 7:38 pm

    Mike, I want to say thank you for working with Wemix and outlining such a unique concept as a template for the Glorious Wemix contest. I entered the contest and was thankful that I even got a chance to participate and have the opportunity to possibly receive professional guidance from you. I was wondering if you are planning on hosting any other contests in the near future? You are a great inspiration to me and I wish more artists with your status were as humble and proactive within the community and the music industry as you are. You must have the patience of Job to have listened to all the entries. Thanks again for being the realists MC on the scene. Utmost Respect, Chino

  46. asaulp on October 23, 2008 at 7:33 pm

    Happy 8th birthday to Hybrid Theory! This was the day that captured the entity of Linkin Park and when you guys made a name for yourselves. Hm.. “Stories of the Lost” has got my vote! keep us updated on your paintings and more info about Glorious Excess (Dies) as it approaches (:

  47. soyuneik on October 23, 2008 at 7:25 pm

    Wow this is really hard to type in. I picked “Hollywood Girl”. They are all really good songs but that particular song is on a whole other level. I’m happy I was even able to enter. If there is a next time, I’ll be sure to give my 110%.

  48. ninguem on October 23, 2008 at 7:25 pm

    mike, contragulations for 8th hybrid theory anniversary!!! if wasn’t this album, you could be working in anything, and i could be a jonas brothers fan (hahaha joke, i never would be jonas fans, even which lp doesn’t exists”) tell more about this classic album to us, stories, etc
    bye and spent your night

  49. lp_fm_fan on October 23, 2008 at 7:23 pm

    That’s cool. πŸ™‚

    Murry: Mike mentions stuff late? =P Or it’s a surprise, but it’s like that whole video about Mike imitating R. Kelly. I don’t think Mike mentioned it but a fan did and he was like “well you found it!” or something, lol. I honestly cannot remember anymore but yeah he didn’t really mention it till someone else did. =P

    Linkin Park Day! (check the lpumb) Happy anniversary HT. πŸ™‚

  50. murry on October 23, 2008 at 6:33 pm

    For the life of me, I can’t figure out why you haven’t mentioned the “Barack Your World” thing yet. It was too tremendous to ignore.

  51. lucky_cat on October 23, 2008 at 6:14 pm

    9.000 songs to check ?! OMG … you did a good job!The 5 finalists are really varied, thats what I like … and I chose. (good that I have a sleepless night, it is 03:13 a.m. here …)

  52. ShadowerLiltani on October 23, 2008 at 6:06 pm

    Yahoo first comment!! I personally like Stories of the Lost the best, it really holds my interest better than the other songs. Regardless, all the submissions are wonderful, and the finalists did an amazing job. By the way, I love that little character counter, it helps so much you have no idea. I still wish my brother had submitted something, he needs studio experience so badly. I mentioned a long time ago, whether or not he enters the contest that I would post a sample of one of his songs on my site, and I am still doing that soon.
